TSCRA adopts new policy positions

TSCRA held their annual Policy Conference in San Antonio last week, offering members an opportunity to guide the association’s position on many important policy issues. TSCRA maintains six policy committees, led and comprised entirely of volunteer members that develop policies to guide TSCRA’s involvement on state and federal issues that impact cattle raisers. The committee meetings in San Antonio resulted in several new policies that were later adopted by the full board of directors, covering topics supporting lawful drone use, business expense deductions in the Internal Revenue Code, agricultural financing and participation in value-added marketing programs.
